Title: Legends of Shannara: Bearers of the Black Staff (Amazon)
Author: Terry Brooks (Official, Wikipedia)

Legends of Shannara: Bearers of the Black Staff takes place 500 years after the events of Genesis of Shannara: The Gypsy Morph and deals with what happens when the last descendants of the old world are sent back into the greater world. I’m trying to be pretty vague here just incase there is anyone than reads this and hasn’t read Gypsy Morph yet.

I’m about 60 some off pages in and so far the book is pretty good. This book definitely feels more like a Shannara novel then the Genesis trilogy did—it felt more like a Word & Void continuation, which is what it really was. I’m not far enough in to really have an opinion one way or the other, but generally speaking I love all of Brooks’ work. I suspect that will be the case with Bearers of the Black Staff.
